    Wow Chu, Impressive list
    Dragons and Serpents get blended often times. Tiamat is a Serpent, So is Quetzacoatl, Abraxas, Apep, and so on.
    You forgot Wadjet (Uadjet), my Dragons name and is the great Serpent Uraeus from Egypt.
    I am the secret Serpent coiled about to spring: in my coiling there is joy.
    If I lift up my head, I and my Nuit are one.
    If I droop down mine head, and shoot forth venom, then is rapture of the earth,
    And I and the earth are one.
